Travel Blogs from Halifax
Halifax is a great city. Very clean and the people are friendly. Went to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Displays of ships and Halifax history. Learned how the city was devastated by the explosion of a French ship in the harbor. The largest blast until Hiroshima. Walked the boardwalk down to the casino where we spent a little time and money. < …
Had breakfast in Lunenburg. Toured around town looking at harbour, scenery and old buildings. Very picturesque. Got to see sights of Ellen Page CISCO commercials (Town Hall & Academy). Drove Lighthouse route to Mahone Harbor, Chester and Peggy's Cove. Rain was very heavy at times but we had our gear. Stopped at Swissair 111 memorial near Peggy' …
... survivors were on their way. The town prepared to receive survivors, bodies, and a damaged ship. No one had told them that the Titanic was sitting at the bottom of the ocean. Then the survivors were taken to New York. The dead were taken to Halifax. In fact, 3 Halagonian ships were sent out to the site in the days after the sinking to retrieve bodies. What an awful task! 328 bodies were recovered. Some were buried at sea, some delivered back ...
... alone. The unfortunate part was when exited the tour it was 17:00 and the pier 21 site was closed. So, we decided to take a walk down the boardwalk. Which allowed all of us to drool over several privately owned yachts. When the bell rang 18:00 we headed back up the hill to our rig and started driving to Cape Breton Island . Come 9pm we decided to call it a night and pulled into the Irving truck stop in Port ...
... Mona's appartment. We went up to hang out briefly, and I said hi to Sarah. She has been busy with her french course, so couldn't join us today. We then had a late dinner together at Wasabi House. The food was good and service was great. Overall the day was quite relaxing and enjoyable to eat and chat with Mona and Cynthia.
We've rented a car for the weekend, so I look forward to some adventures soon.

Historical Traveler Reviews Cambridge Suites - Halifax
Fantastic stay at the Cambridge Suites
I just wanted to ensure that anybody travelling to Halifax for business or pleasure should definately stay at the Cambridge Suites. The rooms are newly renovated and extremely comfortable and large. The continental breakfast had a great variety and the quality was excellent. The staff certainly lived up to the Maratime hospitality that atlantic provinces are renouned for. It was a pleasure staying there and I will not hesitate to stay there again on my next visit. In fact, I look forward to it. Thanks to all the kind staff who made my stay so fantastic.
I found this to be a very pleasant place to stay.
My work has me travelling across the Maritime Region and I found the Cambridge a very comfortable and friendly place to stay.
The staff were helpful and pleasant.
Breakfast was good: juice, fruit, muffins, breads for toasting.
The room was more than expected. Clean and well maintained.
I am a real fan of the Cambridge Suites chain. I have stayed many times at the Toronto location and decided to also try the one in Halifax and again was not disapointed.
While the Toronto hotel is the ultimate in all suites luxury, the Halifax location is accordingly toned down and perfect for the city. Close to all major attractions, clean, spacious rooms and friendly service all make it a must stay!
The continental breakfast can sometime get hairy, but at least its offered! Id recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Halifax.
We chose this hotel because it is the only hotel in downtown Halifax that offers a one bedroom "suite."I was travelling with my 13 year old son so some privacy was important!The rooms are cetainly dated and the carpets are worn.It is overpriced for the quality of the hotel.On Wed. evenings in the summer the Manager offers guests a free cocktail and bbq on the lovely deck overlooking the harbour.The location is great-easy access to the main shopping district of Spring Garden Rd. and a ten minute walk to the waterfront.(very hilly)
Haev just got back home after staying at the Cambridge Suite for 5 nights. We had a suite with harbour view. The room was very spacious, clean and well thought out. Check in staff at reception were very pleasant and efficient. There was no problem when we asked if we could check out later than planned (3 pm) as our flight was delayed. It really was one of the most pleasant hotels we have stayed in and wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
Also impressed by the fact that since returning home, we have had a email from them asking if our stay was satisfactory, and after filling in the on-line questionnaire we have had a email back from them thanking us.
We stayed here February 2000 for one night to attend a concert at the Halifax Metro Centre.
While the hotel is adequate, don't bother with a reservation as it will likely be dishonoured. Our reservation for a suite made three months in advance of a busy 2003 Labour Day weekend and confirmed in writing by the hotel was disregarded upon arrival based on some story about the people in our room wishing to stay on and not wanting to "throw them out". Arrival was mid-afternoon after a two day drive from Ontario with a family of four, including two teenagers. A suite on a smoking floor was offered, but the tobacco smell was extremely offensive and unacceptable (particularly with an asthmatic child). With all other hotels fully booked, we were crowded into a small standard room with two beds. The check in staff made minimal attempts to accommodate, offered only a minor discount and there was no follow up.
Home for 12 days
I found this to be a very pleasant place to call home for 12 days.
I travel plenty as a computer consultant so I feel I know of what I speak.
The staff were helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was good for continental: juice, fruit, muffins, breads for toasting. Full breakfast was available at normal breakfast prices.
Exercise room was clean, with a full universal gym and movement machines of a fair variety.
Worst Hotel Experience Ever
requested rm on top fl. was given 2nd fl no view with hammering 2 drs down to wake up to a 8am - apparently they keep the higher flrs for regulars- charming. Staff incompetent, amenities poorly stocked, room looked dated and dirty - and not like those photos posted on website, overcharged - was told $180 was due to hike increase because the demand put on hotel since Hurricane Juan - isn't that illegal?? 'deluxe continental breakfast' - ha! if you could get any - no place to sit, empty coffee pots, disorganized - garbage everywhere. A complete disappointment - really felt like we were ripped off - would never recommend this hotel - even friends who knew it were shocked at the price we paid.
Cambridge Suites Good Value
We stayed at Cambridge Suites in August 2001. It is not the most luxurious hotel but it is quite nice. It has an excellent location - between Barrington Street and Citadel Hill - just a stone's throw from Spring Garden Road. You can walk just about anywhere. The is a decent licensed restaurant on site. The service was good and the value for location is very good. Parking is an adventure and I wouldn't want to try and get a good size SUV into it!!
